  1. Scibor, mierce miniatures and avatars of war are some good places to check. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Managed to get some hobby time today but I needed a break from painting Fimir. Instead I started work on a moonclan grot squad. Today I have basecoated the lot of them. I'm aiming for a muddy cloth sort of robe for them with dark wood shields to match the marsh that they will come from. I actually really enjoyed painting a squad rather than a larger mini for a change and it served as some excellent practice for my painting skills. I still have a long way to go but I'm enjoying the journey. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hey all, I have a Ironjawz Start collecting set to trade. It was bought for a conversion project but it no longer fits the aesthetic I want. It is untouched minus one or two bases, these have had the GW fancy AoS bases added to top it up and I dont mind throwing in some resin ones too, to sweeten the deal. Open to trades, would ideally prefer destruction themed minis, but am open to most things of they take my fancy or i can see conversion oppurtunities within them. thanks
  4. Only just saw this, apologies. Can you PM me some pictures please?
  5. Hey Chris, thanks for the thoughtful reply, appreciate it. I also kinda prefer the first skin tone but did worry it would be lost without any other colours than earth tones. The purple robes were a snap decision after painting the green in and looking back I think it would make the first colour look better. I do have 5 more fimir arriving this week that need stripping so I think I may try the first skin tone again and see how it looks. I have never used the realistic water before and ( excuse the pun) I think I just need to dive in and give it a go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Time to hit the paints and get these fimir done I think Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Beastclaw raiders is tempting me. Glad to see the fyrebros get some love though. Great army I would love to see more of Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Seen it in the flesh and it does not disappoint. It's one of those displays you see something new every time you look. Really great work by Bish Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hello all, Time for a bit of an update. Today I am going to try and do a bit of an accumulation of lore from the sparse library that we Fimir fanatics have access to. I am also going to be adding my own interpretations, assumptions and home brew lore to help flesh it out. The recent slew of homebrew battletomes being released on the forums has inspired me to try my hand at a collection of literature relating to the Fimm, with a view to turning it into a battletome/supplement project. For now however expect me to ramble here. I must put a bit of a warning here. Some of the origins and reproduction of Fimir are fairly distasteful so if you are easily offended by such things its probably best to not carry on reading. So initially 1D4Chan have a very good writeup of the known lore which can be found here: I am mostly going to be using and building on the information found there to bring them into the AoS setting. If you would like to join in, feel free to add, contest or critique anything posted here, I wont be offended. The aim is to flesh out an under appreciated race that deserve some love. The Fimir - Characteristics Fimir are a seldom seen race often thought of as creatures of myth within the Mortal Realms due to their nomadic nature and limited population. They are a humanoid species with reptilian characteristics, standing between five and seven feet tall when standing straight. Their face is characterised by a cyclopian eye with no pupil, small holes in place of ears, tusks and a beak. Fimir also have a scorpion like tail, usually ending with a boney mace like protrusion that can serve as a makeshift weapon. Skin colour is varied among the race, however the most common pigments range from yellowy brown through to green. The majority of Fimir are born hairless, save for the rarely born female of the race, a Meargh. Meargh are born sterile and cannot produce offspring and are characterised by lank hair and horns. The Fimir are a naturally stocky race who pride themselves on strength and size. A large gut is also a respected aspect, as it is within Ogre culture ( if there is such a thing!). Their long limbs end with three thick claws. Fimir lack depth perception due to their single eye and have no sense of smell, however they make up for this with a keen sense of taste and hearing, both of which are used to detect prey and to aid navigation. Fimir are fond of tattoos both to denote social status, ritual iconography and merely for ones own pleasure. Clothing is usually an indicator of rank ( Nobles are often seen wearing capes for instance) and barring a few exceptions is rarely worn without a practical need for it. Due to the Fimir women (the Meargh) being infertile, the race has to resort to enslaving human women to birth their offspring. While regarded as slaves most of these captured females are treated sternly but gently. Should they resign themselves to their fate bearing Fimir children they are treated well as befits such an important role within the clan and are allowed to travel ( with escorts) within the settlement. There has been occasions where women have come to a clan willingly to trade their life giving abililties for arcane knowledge. Those who resist however are bound, raped and spend the entire gestation period chained up inside a Fimir dwelling. The mortality rate of the human host is usually low with the care of the clans Meargh and shearls, however if a Meargh is born, the mother is usually assured to die within childbirth due to horns of the creature. More to be added to this and I will attempt to keep different aspects to separate posts
  10. Been using gloss effect washes with some mixed success but you are bang on the money with that. Just waiting to get my hands on some next time i order stuff.

  12. Haven't tried it but I would assume it would clump up, will try it before I scrape it off and see what happens Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah, will have to agree on that. I picked up one of the GW flock sets while I was passing through town on a whim and I'm not very happy with it. It looks very fake and as you said, the colours do not work. The red stands out so much and looks very synthetic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. So a little progress report. Been taking my time painting the fimir as I really want to get better at painting. Also tried some proper basing for the first time in ten years of fiddling with the hobby. I think they look ok, however the flock is not fantastic and I would like the mud to be wetter and more realistic. Finally I also bought myself a little treat. Though it's probably going to gather dust for a bit until I can work out how I want to convert it all Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. 60s would be my preference, they are back in stock now, will have to order some and find out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
